Summary:

Dyspnea is a distressing symptom that has been described since ancient times, but only recently has it been comprehensively assessed and managed across disease states. The sensation of dyspnea results from interactions among multiple physiological, psychological, social, and environmental factors. As with pain, adequate assessment of dyspnea depends on self-report by the person experiencing breathing discomfort. Potential causes, underlying mechanisms, and management options are addressed.

Objectives:

The goal of this continuing education program is to update nurses, physicians, and respiratory therapists on the mechanisms of dyspnea and its evidence-based assessment and management. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Describe the characteristics, common causes and underlying mechanisms of dyspnea
  • Discuss the evidence-based assessment of dyspnea with emphasis on clinical indicators in different conditions and patient populations
  • Explain the evidenced-based management of dyspnea
